The New Jerseyites show their true colors.

Thought Vermont was great but is seems like a disaster with the opioids.
These City-Data Vermont forums are enlightening!!

He wasn’t being sarcastic. He thought this whole time they were talking about Koreans. But now that he saw your link he’ll probably try to pretend like he was being sarcastic.

I then went to the store at the Garden State Death Star just for kicks. At the store, I saw a family that had to have consisted of at least 30 people. Each had several bags of items, and a bunch were on line at every register, all with multiple coupons and sub-$10 items. To top it off, in the center of the floor was the Queen of the family, who had to have been at least 250, sitting on the floor with dozens of bags surrounding her.

Like James Evans, the CEO of Macy’s must’ve said, “Bet we ain’t doin’ that **** again...” after that debacle.

I’ll let y’all draw your own inferences about the group(s) to which this family belonged.
That's a great story

Karens rolled hard back in the early 70s.
Karen Valentine on Room 222 was really cute though.

I have never noticed it with American born Americans of any age. Certain immigrant groups seem to have no regard for personal space.
